Imre Kertész won the 2000 Welt-Literaturpreis and the 2002 Nobel Prize in Literature"for writing that upholds the fragile experience of the individual against the barbaric arbitrariness of history." Kaddish For A Child Not Born is a stunning recitation which ". . . resembles . . . other memorably declamatory fictions as . . . Dostoyevsky's Notes from the Underground. Yes, Kertesz's Kaddish is that good" (Kirkus).
